I managed not to need to pee for 5 hours on the boat
A couple more pics from that day...



I felt like taking a boat ride and sailing towards the horizon
not in swimsuit though

The forspar seems of wood, bit smelly bellow decks and normal for her age, i am actually quite fond of old organic ships.

Did the rigging bark? The low thrum and then she sprints, lines are moved and she does again. No engine can do that. NO. ENGINE. CAN. DO. THAT!
Everything moves, ears peek, feet move and she lays over with confidence.

These are the last of my aurora photos. These were taken on the island of Senja in Norway. What a night! No laying back in the snow enjoying this show... howling wind had the"feels like" temp below -20oC and I was hanging onto my tripod to ensure it didn't fly off the end of the jetty, or maybe it was to keep me from the same fate It was still amazingly spectacular, just not as meditative or relaxing. But the action of the winds on the snowy peaks just added another incredible dimension to the show and the moon lit up the fjord mountains beautifully. The show lasted about an hour. I ended up getting two short series of images during the evening, as my tripod did move partway through the show. So the first series I converted to an animated gif, and the second longer series as a timelapse video.

BTW, Aurora Borealis is derived from the Greek words “Aurora” meaning “sunrise” and “Boreas” meaning “wind”. The wind part turned up this night in more than just its solar form.





I wish I had left my camera set up for another 10 minutes or so. To the eye, it appeared the show was over when I turned my camera off, but the camera showed there was still some green slowly dissipating. I wish I'd captured that too... just so the timelapse didn't end so abruptly.
